3+2 Entry-level Master's Partnership Program

Overview

High school seniors who are committed to earning a Bachelor of Science (BS) and Master of Science (MS) in bioscience technologies can apply to one of our partner institutions – Immaculata University or Penn State Abington – and spend 3 years there working toward a bachelor’s degree. As long as all required coursework is completed, students will transition to Jefferson where they will complete the MS degree in 2 years.

The BS is offered in three specialty areas:

Program Length

3 prior years of specific prerequisite coursework (82 credits)
2 academic years (full time)
